My Approach to Helping

You want your relationship to help you through the COVID-19 crisis, not to make it worse. You wish being cooped up for several weeks could be an opportunity for sexual intimacy instead of rehashing old resentments. You wish you and your partner could take this time to finally heal the pain and turn your relationship around. Your relationship used to be a source of strength and resilience. You need help to bring that quality back, now more than ever. You are willing to do your part to make it better, you know you haven’t been perfect either. You need an experienced therapist to help you turn this crisis into an opportunity.

I specialize in issues just like these. I know how to help you use this time to maximize positive relationship changes. I have an active style that focuses on stopping the hurt and helping you connect. Because I specialize in relationship *and* sexual issues, once the emotional connection is reestablished, I know how to help you reignite passion too.

When you contact me today I will get back to you within 1 business day. We'll then have a 15-20 minute phone call to make sure there is a good fit between your needs and my services. On the call I start by answering your questions, then I ask about what is bringing you to therapy and a few screening questions. Then, I'll share what you can expect in the first few sessions. If everything sounds like a good fit, we can discuss my fee and schedule an appointment.

Don't wait any longer to reach out and begin making the changes to end arguments and jump-start the passion with your love. Call me today or click the link for my website and fill out my contact form.

More Info About My Practice

In my practice I am invigorated when my clients across a week are racially and sexually diverse. You may find your identity below for more information about my service to people like you.

African-American: Because I have not forgotten where I come from, I know that I have learned from and owe a debt of service to African-American community members so it is an honor for me to serve African-American clients.

IndianSouth-Asian: I lived in India for almost a year as a young man and lived with families. This gave me an appreciation of Indian family dynamics and insight in the bicultural experiences 2nd generation Americans of Indian descent.

LGBTQ+: Queer space has always been safe space for me. As a member of the queer community, I love giving that feeling of safety back in the therapy room.

KinkBDSM: I'm Kink-knowledgeable meaning I'm familiar with a broad array of kink practices and the Safe, Sane, and Consensual (or R.A.C.K. if you prefer) structures that make them safer. I don't squick -out easily and most of the time, the kink doesn't need to be a focus of treatment.

Consensual Nonmonogamy: Whether you are a swinger, open, poly, or a relationship anarchist, I'm prepared. I can work with individuals, dyads, and more-somes in therapy and I can help with jealousy, relationship agreements, broken agreements, and multilayered communication.

My Therapy Focus

I love helping people with relationship and intimacy issues. I work with couples, individuals, and systems to help improve relationship satisfaction by stopping unproductive emotional cycles, improving communication skills, cultivating mutual empathy and compassion, and helping to create the relationship environment where intimacy can bloom.

It can be challenging to talk with a therapist about sexual issues. For that reason, I take any conversation about sexual issues at the client's pace. I maintain a professional atmosphere where we only talk at the level of detail required for me to understand the challenge and to offer suggestions for changes.
